    Well, I wasn’t gonna last In this group. I’m no Cyrodil war expert, but there’s some SMDH stuff going on around here.
    That's awesome :lol: :lol:

    Once watched an established BWB crown (no kidding) take his entire EP group down to AD's Blackboot gate (which was, naturally, closed because both BB and Far were yellow) and spend 20 minutes trying to siege the gate. That was pretty funny.

    More recently, in Scourge, saw a whole EP group spend 15 minutes fending off waves of DC while trying to siege the corner of Aleswell from the farm. Amazingly, they got it down eventually. Was amusing watching them hop around the busted corner trying to get inside. DC finally put them out of their misery... :smile:

    was back out in NA vivec last night...things were really kind of dead though (tuesday night, new life festival stuff?)...mostly just some fighting around nikel and between bleakers and chalman...

    had faulty on some nightblade try to bring me down at one point...although i haven't played him in a while i was playing on my orc stamplar (mostly a hybrid) who wears all heavy - yeah, good luck trying to burst him down :)

    only played for about an hour and a half...got kind of bored...

    i'll tell you, the longer i play on the EU server, the more i appreciate the folks i'm playing with there...when things are slow on the NA server the zone chat stuff gets pretty foul - it's kind of like going to the zoo and watching the monkeys flee poo at one another...

    repulsive, and, to some degree slightly fascinating (in a weird behavioral sense) at the same time...

    did have some fun this week doing challenges in fortnite (i love flying those planes :p), and, doing the stranger missions in rdr2 online...

    valentine has become the center of all chaos and endless gun battles between players...thankfully my success rate in fights has gone up quite a bit the last week or so...took a lesson from one of my all time favorite westerns: El Dorado...with john wayne and rober mitchum...

    a young james caan plays this character named mississippi, who just can't really shoot very well...so, john wayne hooks him up with a shotgun...
    images-w1400.jpg?1494868650
    good lesson to be learned there - when your aim and reflexes aren't all that great - go with a shotgun...

    next up i need to pick up the bolt action rifle for some out on the range type fighting...that rifle seems to pretty much guarantee head shots...of which i've been on the receiving end way too often...much better to give than receive in this case...

    howdy syrus :)

    I'm thinking that may be part of it, although that doesn't seem to help me much against the resource guards...there it feels like I'm stuck in one continuous eclipse...

    just the targeting itself seem to be really challenging at times...

    I wish folks would just stand still for a second or to while I'm trying to attack them...

    Silly question...what is five star toon? Is that the all gold armor sets? Or PvP rank? Grand Overlord maybe? Does it go higher?

    Cyrodil is so freaking...I don’t even know the word is for it. Get in here, group up, run around doing things, next thing I know it’s Midnight and got to drag myself to bed. Dying waking up the next day a short few hours later. I’m too old to keep carrying on like this.

    When leaving last night, I saw Demi Girl at the bank in north highrock. Shoo shoo. Go away. Scary monster. What you doing here. You not welcome here. That’s bold. Just bold.

    There were some epic battles last night. The freaking milegate at chalman. This battle was going for a solid fifteen minutes before we got overrun. Some were a bit upset, but it was like hey. We just fought for a solid 15 minute with nothing to be gained. It’s time to regroup and go somewhere else. And that’s what we did.

    See you later Cyrodil.

    I took a trip into Cyrodiil for the first time in a while. There are new outposts! I saw bridges and milegate icons on the map too, that's all new for me. It's been a while. I still haven't seen a milegate or bridge siege in action yet. It was cool seeing all that new stuff though. It's also weird seeing AD in last place. Is that the new normal? I can't say I'm a fan of that. For the Queen!

    AD is dominating over in EU vivec...

    it looks like EP has finally taken hold of control of NA vivec...

    EP always had the numbers, but, they used to keep a lot of their numbers in shor...

    not sure if this is a sign of things to come for AD...

    DC is in second on both servers...

    interesting note on pvp and pay to win - rdr2 online has it set up that you can buy your gear (including weapons, and weapon upgrades) with "real" money (as long as you have the correct level requirements meant)...

    I'm not exactly sure how i feel about that...

    I'll make a prediction - DC will win the next campaign if they maintain the numbers and strategy they are running currently on PS4NA. A faction-stacked 70-player ball group slays everything in its path (Confucious?).

    Standing your ground results in unexpected long loadscreens or lag-outs for 50% of the defenders...

    Happy Holidays everyone :smile:

    i was in NA vivec last night playing...zone chat was actually pretty "positive" and cool...some really good call outs and map strategy...

    it's a challenge to herd all of us "randoms" in the right direction, but, it really helps those alliances which are able to make good use of us unwashed masses :)

    i'm most interested this campaign to see how AD responds after last campaign...

    over on the EU server AD won last campaign by about 20k...DC finished second on both servers...

    we'll see if EP is able to cement their dominance on NA vivec and continue the run they've been on the last 4 or 5 months...

    AD has taken a small lead over on EU vivec...all 3 alliances have been battling it out pretty hard...lots of fun...

    I know I'm probably in the minority on this, but, had a couple of great drawn out siege battles defending ales and glade...

    always looks cool to me with a bunch of siege on both sides going back and forth from that high overhead camera view...

    it was funny, yesterday one of the common yellow emps (der rotten critter :p) came over to DC zone chat (not sure if they were just parked at one of the starter zones or actually fighting)...they were pretty relaxed...

    i've gotten run over by their yellow stam warden a few times...saw them in rawl'kha bank with a small female bosmer toon...

    it did not make for a very intimidating sight...I'm not sure if that's their stam warden...kind of hoping it's their crafter...hard to imagine that little bosmer lady rolling over me all the time...

    it was cool though, folks barely even reacted in chat...pretty lighthearted stuff...man. the folks there are super chill :)

    @geonsocal You're missing some good times in Vivec NA. EP started in 1st, then AD took the lead, and now DC is in 1'st. Good to finally have some good fights and wondering who's going to be in first when you log back in.

    Anyway Happy New Years!!!

    howdy everyone...and a very happy new year to you all :)

    was finishing up the new life event ticket stuff yesterday, and, noticed the campaign score over on NA vivec...
    giphy.gif

    played a whole bunch over the holiday weekend...all five toons over on the EU server are sitting at level 30 or 31...for the most part i'm only using the rewards for the worthy gear...i have farmed clockwork city a little, and, have the mad tinkerer set on my mag sorc...i just lover that animation...

    although i have a character researching traits for crafting, i'm not planning on doing any re-traits or crafting until i hit cp 160...hopefully i'll have plenty of mats and gold to properly gear up then...

    right now i'm taking a beating on crit hits - but, oh well...i'm seeing some scary damage numbers from folks who have their crit damage percentages tuned up...

    i'm guessing i should hit cp160 on everyone sometime around the fall of next year...even though i'm gimped a bit - still having a blast playing these new characters...as much as possible i'm trying to use different builds than i have over on the NA server...

    my hope for this year - fix the whole stuck in combat stuff (ugh, that is soooo annoying), and, hopefully no new glitches when the next update comes along...

    The Star-Made Wolfshead will return to the Crown Store for a limited time during a Midyear Mayhem encore event on all platforms, from January 10 to January 21 at 10am EST. Watch for more details about the event later this month!

    coolio...i was just thinking about taking my EU guys through battlegrounds...i'm almost a year away before i'll be able to use them, but, i need to start accumulating AP so i can buy some monster set pieces...i'm going to need a total of 10 pieces (2.5 million AP)...battlegrounds is probably the fastest way for me to earn that AP...

    i'll probably keep it simple and pick up earthgore, troll king, bloodspawn, chudan and velidreth...given how random the golden can be (and how little i like running dungeons) - i probably need to start collecting as soon as possible...

    DC finally ahead in Vivec NA and along comes Midyear Mayhem around the 10th to skew the campaign.
    Will be interesting to see if they can hold the lead.
    On another note I broke CP200 on my EU character thanks to the New Life boosts.
    Got quite a few monster shoulders thanks to the 7 undaunted keys I got in the Mystery boxes for the EU guy.

    have your stats sort of leveled out now where you feel like you can compete in cyrodiil?

    or, does cp 200 still feel squishy?

    I think I also picked up about 7 keys or so from the new life event (I'll get more when I hit level 45 with everyone)...ugh, it's just that the loot table is so diluted for those undaunted chests...

    still, can't wait to put together some decent gear sets :)

    what are you wearing?

    Believe it or not I am still using my level 40 Hunding's/Night Silence crafted set with dropped CP160 plague doctor jewlery.
    I am just now getting the EU character to where he can craft CP160 gear. XP scrolls and event XP boost are good for getting your character leveled but doesn't boost crafting inspiration so you can get to CP200 before you can decon enough stuff to get crafting all to level 50. I am only Veteran alliance rank as I have been concentrating on farming CP.
    Sure seemed to go faster on my NA CP1000 plus account though. lol

    i'm thinking of using the velyn harbor crafting spot to try to reach level 50 on blacksmithing, woodworking and clothing...i'm mentally prepared though to not level jewelry crafting or enchanting for years to come :)

    just curious - what's your crit resist sitting at...nightblades (or pretty much any player with buffed up crit damage stats) are hitting me really hard...

    one of the benefits of bringing five toons along at the same pace is that as i open gear boxes every five levels or so i'm able to keep their gear fairly up to date and put together at least one 5 piece bonus on each...

    i have no doubt though my patience will be severely tested once i reach level 50 and start the cp grind to 160...

    first and foremost - howdy night angel...good to see you out there tonight in NA vivec...

    thanks for trying to say "hi"...

    it's been a while since I've been on my magblade...no doubt if there hadn't been a little friendly interference you'd have probably got me :)

    although my magblade wears 5 heavy...it's better for him to mostly stay in stealth...for some reason I was in "brawler" mode most of the night...

    looks like ol' mister gooch has come back home to DC...chat seemed pretty chilled about it...

    ran into abyss...he blamed me for getting kicked from the forums...I felt kind of bad about it...

    I did report one of his comments on the thread once...he had made a reference to a build or playstyle being like cancer...at the time I was a little sensitive to any kind of disease or illness talk...

    still, should have kept it just between us, wasn't my best moment...I apologized to him about it shortly afterward...but, if he's got hard feelings - I understand...

    it was interesting, the servers were supposed to shut down at 1am pst - cyro ended up staying open to a little after 1:40 am...those last 40 minutes were pretty frenetic and fun...

    we ended up taking a couple of extra spots on the map...

    here's hoping a fix for staying stuck in combat is in the patch notes...

    You had several good push’s tonight @geonsocal slapping around EP’s pugs. My group did have a good fight with Fatality on Chal in which I have repaided Abyss the bags he’s been giving for the last few days 😃. As for Campaign I’m hoping we move towards what Pc Has where everyone has a month of victory. Fights have been good this month
